Hello, everyone.

I'm reading a book now that is popular, and I wonder what other grievers thought about it. It's called "Wave" and is about the true story of a woman who lost her husband, children, and parents all at once in the 2014 Tsunami in Sri Lanka. It's more about her grief experience than the event itself and, even though her loss was very different from mine, I find I can identify with much of what she goes through. It's well written. 

When my husband died, I wanted everything I could read about loss. Maybe I was weird that way but a few books really helped:

Healing After Loss, Hickman

Widow to Widow, Ginsburg

Saturday Night Widows, Aikman

Anyone else have a book they've relied on, or thoughts about Wave?

Best to you all,

I read that book a couple years ago. I want to read it again now that I've experienced the loss of my second partner. I remember completely understanding the craziness and irrational behavior she experienced and engaged in. It made total sense to me - and I think I can relate even more now.

Britt, I don't know how you've managed to deal with this twice. My heart goes out to you. I find now that I have a new partner, I'm always trying to brace myself against it happening again. I, too, could relate to all her crazy behavior and anger.
